Ataraxia Under The Gavel Chardonnay 2012

Sourced from a single south-facing vineyard on The Skyfields, home to Ataraxia in the Hemel-en-Aarde outside Hermanus. Intensely interventionist fruit selection was followed by an extremely non-interventionist winemaking approach. Fermented in small French tight-grain oak barriques, custom ordered from very specific Burgundian coopers, this wine was barrel aged for a further 10 months before being bottled. Tasting Notes: This wine is The Skyfields terroir in a bottle. It expresses the ancient soils and maritime influenced meso-climate of this specific vineyard. Reflecting the very best that both the New World and Old World styles have to offer, the wine is signatured by minerality, and effortlessly manages to be both subtle and intense on bouquet and palate. Complex, classy and pedigreed.
